SALEM WEEKLY NEWS

For November 15, 2019

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY

Anna Elizabeth Yurs, daughter of Dale and Beth Yurs, will be baptized during our worship service this Sunday morning. Her paternal grandfather is readying a sermon, very loosely based on Mark 10:13-16, under the title “Notes for a Baby Book.”


PHONICS IN THE SANCTUARY

Our Handbell Choir will play an anthem during our worship service this Sunday. It will sound very, very much like the familiar hymn “How Can I Keep from Singing.” Careful listeners, however, will discern a subtle but important difference. The choir actually will be playing “How Can I Keep from Ringing.” Be listening, then, for the S in the original sheet music to make the R sound.

WREATHS and POINSETTIAS

We are taking orders from persons who would like to sponsor a wreath or poinsettia for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Wreaths are $36 and poinsettias are $10; they can be given as gifts to the church or recorded as presented in memory or in honor of someone of the donor’s choosing. Order forms will be in Sunday’s bulletin. You may also place an order by way of a return email.

KOINONIA

The women’s fellowship gathering known as Koinonia will meet at the church on Thursday, November 21, at 7 PM.

MEN’S FELLOWSHIP

Salem’s men’s fellowship will meet at 6:30 PM on Thursday, November 21, at the home of Harlan Hall.

COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING SERVICE

The annual Community Thanksgiving Service will be held at 3 PM on November 24 at St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church. This service is co-sponsored by Salem, St. James, Sugar River United Methodist, and St. Andrew’s Church. We anticipate participation by all the pastors of these churches. Dawn Lingard, The Chancel Choir, and The Barry Robinson Chorus will be among those supplying music.
